If you thought Doctor Who was out of surprises, today's panel at San Diego Comic Con would change your mind. We saw two clips from the upcoming seventh season of the British time-travel classic — and one of them contained something we've never, ever, seen before. Let's just say it's Doctor Who's answer to Snakes on a Plane.
So the first clip we saw was just from the third episode, tentatively called "The Gunslinger," where the Doctor visits the Old West. (We already saw footage from that episode a while back.) The Doctor, Amy and Rory walk into a saloon in the Old West town of Mercy — and it looks like the usual bit where everybody stops playing cards and the piano stops playing, as everyone stares. The Doctor bellies up to the bar and asks for a tea — the strongest possible, with the teabag still in there. The undertaker comes and starts measuring him for a coffin — and then something truly surprising happens. Someone asks the Doctor if he's an alien.
